Good place

Interesting dishes, well-prepared, nice evening. Probably worth reserving a table especially on popular days, we had to wait 15 min even though we were only two.

had the great pleasure of coming through the quaint town of Carlsbad, New Mexico on a business trip. It is always wonderful to find a hidden gem amidst all restaurants that claim to be fine dining. Carlsbad is LUCKY to have Yellowbrix Restaurant, as it truly brings fine dining taste to a hometown culture. I visited Yellowbrix on multiple occasions... More

Went to YellowBrix on a Tuesday evening in January. We had just checked into our hotel, and the front desk staff suggested it. I wish they hadn't. Maybe this place doesn't have anyone who can cook on the premesis on Tuesdays? Or in the evening? YellowBrix is in a cool old house and was nicely decorated for the holidays. I... More

I have been to Yellowbrix for lunch and dinner at least fifteen times over the past two years. This is the place most people in the group want to go, and I cannot figure out why, other than they like the live music in summer on the patio. These memories seem to translate into goodwill that carries them through the... More

I had lunch here with a colleague visiting from Guatemala. Curb appeal: colorful, attractive, and eclectic. We were greeted and seated immediately. We were offered outdoor/indoor seating and opted for indoor. The wait staff was cheerful, helpful, and patient. My colleagues had some questions about ingredients and preparation. The server dashed back into the kitchen for answers. The food arrived... More

My daughter begs to go to this place regularly, and we happened to drive by at around 4:00 and I was totally surprised to find that it was open (not every place in town is open at this hour)! We had shared a really wonderful early dinner and our waiter--Derrick recommended some excellent food and provided wonderful service. We really... More

Some of the folks I work with told me the food was good, but the restaurant was "pricey". They were wrong...the food is excellent and well worth the price. Yes, it is a little pricey for Carlsbad, but about what you'd expect to pay in a bigger city. I ordered the pork chops and my wife ordered a steak. We... More

I went here for Fall Ball (aka Snow Ball but in October) and prom with my friends, and it was great. Everyone loved their food, but being broke high school kids, we did have to break the bank in order to get that dessert. Now, if you went during lunch and got something like a salad, you wouldn't have to... More

Working long hours in Carlsbad doesn't allow much time to eat out but we had our chance tonight and decided to try the YellowBrix! We have driven by so many times and thought it was such a charming looking place from the outside and we were certainly not disappointed! Our server, Derrick was like a one man show and was... More

We passed this restaurant and thought it looked interesting, then later looked at an online review and found it was ranked #2 in town. It was outstanding and a rare find in this part of the country. I've traveled to many major cities for business and this place stands up to anything I've had anywhere. The pork chop in a... More
